Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is a system of training to build a new generation of practitioners of a skill. Apprentices build their careers from apprenticeships. Most of their training is done on the job while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade. Theoretical education may also be involved, informally via the workplace and/or by attending vocational schools while still being paid by the employer.

A saddler designs, manufactures, rebuilds, and repairs saddles, saddle trees, harnesses, riding boots and associated tack, such as bridles and stirrups, for all equestrian disciplines. Saddlers have to be knowledgeable in horse anatomy, leathers, various metals, riding disciplines and first aid for horses. They use would learn how to use proper hand tools and equipment to manufacture goods. Saddlers read and interpret charts, diagrams or research documents, measure horse and rider, decide on size and shape, and then transfer that information to make a pattern from which the saddle is then cut and stitched. Many of the skills from this trade can be use in other leather crafts and trades, such as Harness Maker.
